"Myofascial Release is the future of Health Care"- John F. Barnes
Health is wealth. We can all be rich. Self Myofascial Release is self care. Self care is everyday health care for every body. Self care is self love.
Myofascial Release and Self Myofascial Release treats and prevents chronic pain gently and naturally. Breath, touch, intention, movement and sound are medicine, only they heal even when you are not sick and are freely available to everybody, anytime, anywhere, everywhere.
